Rearranging Formulae

Rearranging formulae is a key topic at GCSE.  Students learn how to use the balance method and order of operations to change the subject of a formula.  As learning progresses the students begin to consider formulae involving powers and roots.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to rearrange a formula involving addition and subtraction terms.
  • Most students should be able to rearrange a formula involving a combination of product, division, addition and subtraction terms.
  • Some students should be able to rearrange a formula involving powers using the balance method.
